Yes or No? How’d your Rep. Vote on TPP Fast Track

Last week the House of Representatives voted on Fast Track authority for the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), twice. That’s right twice. The first time the bill overwhelmingly failed due to a number of concerns and political divergence. In a surprising maneuver they voted again on Thursday, this time removing a controversial aspect of the bill call Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA), which provides workers whose jobs have been impacted by trade with federal aid. By removing the TAA the House passed a Fast Track bill, mind you not in a bipartisan manner only 28 democrats voting in favor of Fast Track.

Since the Senate had already approved a Fast Track bill it will be re-voting on Tuesday, June 23, to attempt to reconcile the Senate and House versions of the bill. If the Senate passes the bill, Congress will have relinquished the majority of its oversight of this massive trade deal and place sole decision making authority in the hands of the President and the US Trade Representatives (USTR). The USTR’s main priority is to increase trade oftentimes without consideration for and at the expense of the environment, society, and democracy.

Wondering how your representative voted? Check out the list below. A yes vote means that your representative voted to approve Fast Track authority, relinquishing congressional oversight and siding with corporate interests over public and environmental safety.

Displeased with how your representatives voted? Keep in mind that TPP does not end here. Ultimately there will be a final yes or no vote on the trade agreement, Fast Track takes away congressional oversight and editing of the document. Make sure to let your representatives know that you are dismayed with their vote and that you expect them to stand up for the public, environment, and democracy.
